It's been a seriously rough summer for love (RIP Gwen + Gavin, Avril + Chad, Megan + Brian, Ben + Jennifer, Zayn + Perrie, and Blake + Miranda), which is why we're extra-overjoyed to report that – thanks to Chris Hardwick and Lydia Hearst – love is back to #winning.
We're sending massive congratulations to the Nerdist CEO and model/actress, who just got engaged! YAY LOVE!!!!!??❤️ Hearst announced the news on her Instagram account, alongside a breathtaking photo of the couple.
"I said YES!!!!!! ? Every love story is beautiful, but ours is my favorite. You completely swept me off my feet. You have shown me what it feels like to be loved and I love you with all my heart. My life is better because you are in it @nerdist."
But wait, IT GETS EVEN BETTER: Lydia's engagement ring belonged to her grandmother, and was given to Chris by Lydia's mother Patricia. He posted a photo of the massive sparkler to his Instagram, and it appears even the camera got misty-eyed over the accompanying caption.
"My biggest win of the night was actually @lydiahearst saying YES!!!! This ring belonged to her grandmother Catherine Hearst and @patriciahearst has graciously and wonderfully passed it down to me to give to Lydia. IT'S OFFICIAL!!! What an absolutely perfect and amazing night!! I love this woman with all my heart....#YesThisMeansWhatYouThinkItMeans"
Our broken hearts, they are a-healin'.
